Not Bad...But Too Busy for the Servers

Walking distance from our hotel, the Holiday Inn across the street, we tried this restaurant late on a Saturday night. It was after 9 PM, so service was a bit spottty - it seemed like a single waiter (who did as good a job as possible) inherited a large number of diners, as other servers went home... read more

Good food. Their shrimp dishes are superb. We have visited the la mirada elephant bar at least 3 times and have always enjoyed the food, environment and service.

What a lovely place this was. Went looking for a coffee to fill some time and decided to have a meal. Absolutely wonderful, tasty and fresh. Orange and ginger chicken was just perfect. Staff were friendly and efficient and it was cheap as an added bonus.

Elephant Bar used to be a "must go" place to eat with lots of choices of what to eat. With each ownership change choices are removed and the reason that we visited is minimized. The service was good, and the ambiance as nice as before, but something is now missing - the wonderful menu choices as in the days of... More

Got a drink ASAP, that was nice. However, over 45 minutes later still waiting to be acknowledged by bartender so I can order some food. I'm running out of fingernails. Pretty sure if I got up and left w/o paying they wouldn't notice until closing time. Better service at a Carl's, Jr. !

I was a real fan of Elephant Bar for several years, but seems it went downhill in the past 2 years. Service iffy at best, just seems there was a general lack of caring in service and sometimes the food. New owners have changed menu but prices went up and service still iffy. I only go there in a pinch... More

very good food and ambience. Always clean and inviting. I like the new menu which is much more compact than the previous "book" menu. Service is iffy. Sometimes I get great service, sometimes its like hailing a cab. Especially like the tomato basil soup and creme brulee. Havent' had anything bad yet. The jambalaya can go from mild to very... More
